Toshiba Teli's GiantDragon GigE industrial camera integrates UV and near IR sensitivity
Toshiba Teli Corporation has expanded its GiantDragon gigabit Ethernet (GigE) industrial camera line to include a model with UV and near IR sensitivity, the CSGS15BC23, which provides 1280 x 1024 resolution at 15 frames-per-second (fps).
Integrating at 500 mil seconds and featuring a response range of 230nm to 1050nm, the GiantDragon CSGS15BC23 has sensitivity in the visible, the ultraviolet (UV) and the near IR portions of the light spectrum, allowing it to inspect products for blemishes, surface artifacts or defects not observable in standard lighting conditions, as well as where there is changing light intensity or on reflective surfaces that produce high levels of visible-spectrum noise. Plastic film, glass, coating or other UV-blocking materials are not needed.
The GiantDragon CSGS15BC23 features a 2/3-inch monochrome progressive scan CCD with anti-blooming capability. Its global shutter and external trigger permit synchronization in demanding machine vision applications. With the free Software Developer's Kit, Toshiba Teli supplies an Application Programming Interface (API) for fast and easy control.
The GiantDragon CSGS15BC23 leverages the economy and agility of the AIA GigE Vision open standard. This design enables the real-time delivery of high bandwidth streams of non-compressed imaging data to host PCs over standard Ethernet cables to distances of up to 100 meters without specialized interface hardware or frame grabbers.
The CSGS15BC23 measures a compact 44mm x 29mm x 70mm (W x H x D), allowing for easy integration and interchanges.
